SplPriorityQueue is a fantastic new feature of PHP 5.3. However, in trying to utilize it in a few projects recently, I've run into some behavior that's (a) non-intuitive, and (b) in some cases at least, undesired. In this post, I'll present my solutions.
I'm currently doing research and prototyping for autoloading alternatives in
Zend Framework 2.0. One approach I'm looking at
involves creating explicit class/file maps; these tend to be much faster than
include_path, but do require some additional setup.
My algorithm for generating the maps was absurdly simple:
The question was what implementation approach to use.
I'm well aware of
RecursiveDirectoryIterator, and planned to use that.
However, I also had heard of
FilterIterator, and wondered if I could tie that
in somehow. In the end, I could, but the solution was non-obvious.
